This place has so much potential. Good to see that councils finally spending money to improve - kids playground is much better. The pitch & put is a great attraction in the summer - nice long holes and good value for the price. More money needs to be spent on the football pitches - lots of young kids train in... More

The park has plenty of open areas used for the most part as sports fields for somewhere so built up around. There are some pleasant wooded walks and a large play area and pond with a busy little pitch and put course. A typical café, fairly average but quite roomy and nice, friendly staff. Busses pass the main gates and... More

There is a slightly abandoned feel to some parts of the park but it has some great open spaces, trees and gardens. The two country houses a quite lovely but council(shame on them) have let then decay quite a bit. Now being renovated...great. Gates open about 730am so a nice way to walk from Ealing to Chiswick...my daily commute.

Perhaps the most underrated park in London, Gunnersbury is large enough to feel like a place in itself - rather than just a pocket of greenery in the midst of a huge city like so many other parks. As it is jointly owned by two councils neither of them take responsibility for it - meaning the two mansions are criminally... More

Gunnersbury park is not very well know, not even for the people living nearby, even so the park is worth a visit. Perfect for walks, runs, chilling out... It even has a pond and a golf course. Some buildings in the park are quite old and unfortunately some of them are really falling apart. I loved it here and I... More

A hidden gem of a park that I love to run around on a regular basis. On Saturday morning they have Park Run (9am) as well and you'll meet a large group of great people from the area. Lovely to walk around, a nice coffee shop near the pond and there's also a pitch and putt golf course that's well... More

I went here in the spring and I found it very peaceful. Thanks to the non central location... Finally away from tourists and noises!

The park itself is overgrown and nice old buildings seem to be at the edge of falling apart but somehow it's a very enjoyable environment and you are actually forgetting the busy streets just behind the fence. We were enjoying getting lost in the maze of paths (no maps to find inside the park). There is a great playground with... More

This was somewhere new on our recent trip to London, it made a nice change. The park could be in better shape but they are still working on it. There are some ruins and gardens to see. People walking their dogs or going for a walk, quite a nice cafe with hot drinks, snacks and meals and ice creams. The... More
